KGB Border Troops Signals

This is a really interesting tunic on a site; KGB Border Troops Signals / Communications. I have to say to never having seen one of these! I'd like to keep a record of it here.

Re: KGB Border Troops Signals

Marc,

It is KGB Border Troops, so the green color tabs and boards are correct (I assume you mean the insignia and not the tunic itself).

I doubt that. There are quite a few around and I think the demand is limited. Worth to notice is that the belt in the picture is older type with more golden threads than the later ones.
